Auto Accident Lawyer Ocean Isle Beach NC - Personal Injury Attorney
As in almost every other state, drivers and owners of automobiles in the state of North Carolina, are required to have liability insurance. In North Carolina, if a person is hurt by the driver of a motor vehicle they may be entitled to payment or reparation for their loss.
Even if the driver of the vehicle who caused the injury had no insurance, so long as the owner or driver has uninsured coverage, it is possible to receive compensation under their own policy. North Carolina however is one of the few states in which the "contributory negligence" doctrine is still applied. This doctrine states that if a judge or jury decides that the plaintiff was even 1% at fault, they may be disqualified from receiving any compensation. The insurance laws and regulations are complicated and you should consult with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney immediately to help you if you are hurt in an accident involving a vehicle.
Should you or someone you know get hurt in a motor vehicle accident, contact Collins Law Firm at 910-793-900 for a free consultation.
